From what I understand you can use this to build a private wireless internet?
would be interesting to build something like this for our settlement and communicate out of reach from prying eyes
I have something similar at my house. It's essentially an infinitely expandable network.
With modules that can go all over extending your wifi without duplicating the ssid.
It's handy, but expensive.
what do you use it for if you dont mind me asking
Well, the primary point of it is range extension, I have a fairly long house, even the most expensive routers wont cover it.
But theres securuty and convenience reasons as well.
They have a unified interface, which allows for control of the network as a whole, rather than having to set up individual access points.
Which is a pain.
can it really extend 15km out like it claims?
They have finely granulated permissions and policy controls as well, much moreso than the average home router.
With enough modules, sure.
Or with high powered directional transmitters and recievers.
do you think this could come in handy in a settlement, for members to communicate securely?
As long as it was kept isolated from the web, otherwise it isn't 100% secure.
And most any wifi has vulnerabilities.
If someone has the encryption keys and is in range.
Wifi is generally not your best option if security is your main priority.
but being in range is already a major obstacle no?
plus you would need to know it even exists
Depends on where you are I suppose.
To hack a wifi network, yes you have to be physically in range, so if you can keep outsiders far enough away, it would be ok.
with things like discord some unwanted (((person))) can stumble in and see everything were talking about, but with a private network they have to go to some serious lengths
I'm not sure I would bet on that.
It's a different thing though.
In Discord we are connected to users all over the world.
yea im sure if the FBI really wants to know what youre up to i dont think anything can stop them, but if you give them no reason to look, will anyone know?
In that case you have no choice but to use the public internet.
WHo knows man, there's no telling what the NSA is listening to and archiving.
And all the other government spooks.
At this point I wouldn't be suprised if they roamed the countrysides looking for rogue networks to get into and spy on.

Looking to get my first gun, what do you guys reccomend? Pistol, shotgun, etc? Also, a specific model if you have one in mind. Thinking of going with a shotgun
whats your primary purpose, and do you live a cucked state or no
if you want a voodoo totem that lives under your bed and makes you feel safe a shotgun is fine
if you want to do anything fun with it, skip the shotgun
theres definitely the argument that you can hunt with the shotgun, and i dove hunt with one every year, but my bird gun would be hilariously shit at home defense
theres the edge case of 3 gun competition, but 3 gun means you're shopping for all 3, and id still put the shotgun second or last
if you live in a must issue state or a state that doesnt make you jump through hoops for shall issue ccw, get a pistol first imho
(also get your permit and carry it)
(always carry it)
unfortunately i dont think theres a real answer to 'da bes pistol' as it comes down to handfeel and comfort
best entry level 556 is stupid easy right now, get an m&p sport 2, they're basically giving them away
i daily carry a glock 19, but your favorite pistol is like your favorite anime; it fucking sucks
the muh mechanical safety vs muh no mechanical safety debate rages eternal
see also: muh caliber, muh mag size, muh stoppin powa
my xmas present to myself is going to be a chiappa rhino and a boot holster
shot my buddy's at the range this summer and fell in love
and if you do want a home defense shotgun, get a remington 870 home defense, no sense in reinventing the wheel for your first go boom
Thanks for the info. Live in Indiana so gun laws almost non existent. It would just be for home defense (maybe a little range shooting but defense is first priority). Will look at some pistols, think i will go with a good ol boom stick for the first one and then go for a pistol (cant really carry since mostly walking around university)
np, i still recommend a pistol over a shotgun for home defense, like any tool, you gotta practice to be good with it, and you arent going to be going to indoor ranges and shooting your defense length shotgun
best thing there is go to cabelas or bass pro or whatever you have up there on a weekday and talk with the guy at the gun counter
he'll let you handle guns so you can get an idea for what is comfortable in your hands
and i mean a shotgun isnt some terrible bad thing to not buy, its just really easy to go to an indoor range and shoot your pistol, its a giant pain in most places to be able to run a box of shells through your scattergun
its like working out, if you have to drive an hour to your gym, how often are you going to make excuses not to go
This could be very useful for a group of people
they're fun guns to shoot, though i never shot a FA one
definitely not shtf guns though, they're fiddly
yeah its just really cool
what do you think the ideal shtf gun is?
depends on the manner of shtf, like nork nukes or what
I vote shotgun
if i have to go live in the woods again forever, probably a tried and true AK
less finnicky in dirty environs
anything else, my ar
maybe an sks or nugget
i bought a cute little carbine a while back that takes my pistol mags, kel-tec sub2000, i like it as a backpack gun, it folds up
i wouldnt want to hunt with it, for numerous reasons, but its sweet for larping at the range
it could be a good urban minority deterrent
yeah thats it
im watchig that right now haha
"let's see if we can wake up mr. trayvon heh heh heh"
(it wont shoot at a 90 degree angle ofc)
its super light and takes my glock mags, of which i have basically an infinite number
Don't-even-own-a-gun 2 cents here:
I would get an AK- variant. Preferably Finnish or Israeli (yeah I know) because that's the gun I have been trained with in the army (7.62x39). If I were to go for a bigger gun I'd chose a british .303 though. The rapid shooting of the Enfield is pretty amazing in my opinion, unfortunately there's almost no surpluss ammo left.
you can literally buy an american made, billet milled receiver akm made by century for under a grand
there arent any 'cheap ak vars' anymore, you'll pay 5-600 for a wasr 10 or some bulg variant
the comedy option is to buy blanks, a press, and the dies to make your own stamped receivers, telling yourself that in the long run you'll save money cause you want to make like 10 aks
then you realize how shit hard it is to make a gun that works in your garage and you end up with a $2000 ak that shoots like crap
theres zero reason for any person located in the USA and over tha age of 18 to not go to your local dicks/cabelas and buy a M&P Sport II today, right now
literally baby's first battle rifle
I heard Century AKs are trash, at least that seems to be the consenus on /k/
its an old meme
when they first started importing/rebuilding polish/bulg aks for the us market, they had serious build quality issues
that said i super dont recommend buying an old used one lol
granted, of the ancient old ones out there, the chi-com mak90s are the cream of the crop
What are your thoughts on the M14, mini 14 and mini 30?
the mini 14 is a classic
the m14 is overwrought and a little scary to build yourself
like, the m1a's that springfield has been putting out recently are awesome
but i dont want that to be the gun i have to service alone if the shtf
never handled a mini 30
if i want to throw 308 far, id just as soon set up a ar pattern in 308 with a heavy barrel
granted thats a super edge case scenario where you're engaging armor at range
thats one of the firearms rabbit holes, stopping power/range
you start with a simple and perfectly fine ar pattern in 556, and someone youve never met on a hindu basketweaving forum tells you that 556 is the 9mm of rifle rounds and muslim terrorists have basically built up an immunity to it, and its off to the races
you wake up from a fevered haze and you've bought 10k rounds of 300 blackout
(300blk is super fun to shoot out of an ar pattern tho)
recoil profile is radically different from 556 and 762
Ever shot 5.56 or 7.62x39 through bushes or branches?
sure, anything solid is going to modify a fast projectile's path
its the same with even larger rounds, i hunt with a 30.06
please dont misunderstand my lack of preference on the m14, its not the round, the the fiddly nature of the receiver action
i do believe that folks get super caught up in caliber dick-waiving, but to each his own there
From my experience in the Finnish army, we got to play around with the 556 and it seemed like we had to put two or three rounds more to get our metal targets to fall down, compared to the 762 which usually made the metal targets fall on the first shot (if you hit of course). This was even more noticable when the targets were behind bushes or any sort of object.
oh, 7.62 is a demonstrably heavier round for sure
I don't have formal military training, so take my shit with a grain of salt in regards to anything human conflict related
im just a good old boy from alabama who owns a bunch of them there guns
I believe this is one of the main reason why Finland is sticking to the ''outdated'' 7.62x39. We hardly shot at ranges further than 150m and even then there were usually brushes and shit in the way of our targets.
haha, we didn't shoot much live ammo though, so I don't have much experience in that way.
7.62 is a fine round
i have an akm, its fun to shoot, and cheaper to shoot than my ARs
I guess I've shot less than 300 live rounds
yeah thats a range trip for me, but then again, i live in the US, and in one of the biggest gun culture bits of it
I thought I'd share a webstore that sells quality stuff for a good price and fair shipping, even all the way to the USA.
I own multiple of their products, I've never been dissapointed with any of their products and their product descriptions are pretty funny some times.
Anyone know what to do when the oil drain bolt wont budge
are you on a car
Wrench wont take it off, ive tried hitting the wrench with a hammer, using a carjack to try prop it to move iy just lifts the car
Yea a car
you have penetrating lubricant and heat available ..did you warm the car before trying to drain the oil
I warmed it
Didnt lube it or anything
yeah i never had one stick im worried its crossthreaded
if so then fuggg
I beat the fuck out of it and it wont turn
i beleive you lol
you dont have pb blaster or liquid wrench i guess
Not on me
I could get some
yeah it still might not work but its a cheap try you just gotta make a trip
if you are going to an auto parts store you might want to see if they have a new drain plug so you dont put the same one back in
Yea, ill try use the lube next time and hammer it off again
let the lube do the work you dont want to ruin the oilpan
I blame the jews for this
one probably picked that bolt since it saved a penny...if only we could keep them busy chasing pennies some other way...we will never find an answer
Unless it's an aluminum engine.
Then you're probably screwed
go buy a new plug bolt, then drill the old one out
